First published in 1741, Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations, originally composed for harpsichord, is one of the most important, influential and thrilling examples of variation form.
The aria and the 30 variations that follow encompass all aspects of Bach’s style, and stand as a monumental achievement within his extraordinary body of work as well as that of the entire western musical canon. This lecture is designed to both introduce the work to those who are not yet familiar with it, and to take those who are to a deeper level of listening.Buy tickets/get more info now
